. Posted in Projects


SDFA-Kenya seeks to establish youth resource centers that will enable youth with informal education be trained on both technical and vocational skills that can be used within the facility to enable the youth to be self-dependent, and be active participants in development efforts of their own communities. The resource center will have basic tools and equipment where youth will design and make solar lamps and other renewable energy products. In addition, the youth will utilize their skills and talents in art, design, fashion, metalwork, woodwork, weaving, among others; to develop products and services which they can earn a living from. SDFA-Kenya will facilitate access to markets for the products and services.
